Abstract

It is important to have a Math Club in one’s school. It offers a forum to bring together students and teachers who share a love for mathematics. Let it be emphasized right from the start that a Math Club is not meant only for gifted students. Nor is it a forum for coaching students for math competitions. Rather, it is a forum for ‘doing’ and exploring mathematics, in an atmosphere of freedom and sharing. As such it should be open to anyone who has an interest in the subject and wishes to see math ideas in action, learn about mathematicians, hear about new areas of application, and so on. In the same way, the Club should not be restricted only to mathematics teachers. Indeed, it would be good if the convenor of the club goes out of the way to persuade interested colleagues to join the club. We list here some ideas for running such a Club.
